Marriot Sets a New Standard for Healthy Hospitality




Marriott Hotels’ JW Marriott brand is kicking off a new wellness focus that includes physical activities, healthy dining options, yoga classes, in-room massages, juicing and workout gear lending programs at the San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. The idea is to provide solutions for those worried about falling behind on their fitness and wellness routine when traveling, or just want a nearby wellness retreat experience.

The resort features two TPC PGA tour golf courses, an expanded fitness center, running and walking paths with varied grades and extreme swimming. Other wellness activities include an agility boot camp, Piloxing (boxing and Pilates), cardio core, Zumba, aqua tone, yoga and barre classes. For those that prefer to create their own workout routine, the fitness center workout space offers Hammer Strength Smith machines for strength training and plenty of elliptical machines, stationary bikes and cross-trainers.

Spa menu items developed by a health-conscious chef include light fare featuring organic ingredients, herbs fresh-picked from the property’s organic garden, fruit smoothies, water with seasonal fruit infusions seasoned with locally grown nuts and in-house made trail mixes, and even healthy food cooking tips. Marriott is expanding with more in-depth wellness programs around the world.
